Pupil Premium

The Pupil Premium category was introduced by the Government in April 2011 to support the progress of particular groups of students. Additional funding is allocated to schools to help support disadvantaged students in order to close the attainment gap between themselves and their peers. This funding is allocated to students who are:

Disadvantaged pupils
• Pupils in year groups reception to year 6 recorded as Ever 6 free school meals
• Pupils in years 7 to 11 recorded as Ever 6 FSM
• Looked-after children (LAC) defined in the Children Act 1989 as one who is in the care of, or provided with accommodation by, an English local authority
• Children who have ceased to be looked after by a local authority in England and Wales because of adoption, a special guardianship order, a child arrangements order or a residence order
Service children
• Pupils in year groups reception to year 11 recorded as Ever 6 service child or in receipt of a child pension from the Ministry of Defence.

Our Pupil Premium strategy for 2019-20 will continue to build on the significant progress we have made in 2018-19.

Our Pupil Premium 2019-20 strategy will focus on the following  priorities, these are:

  • To improve the attendance and reduce the persistent absenteeism of disadvantaged pupils
  • To improve the outcomes in maths & numeracy across the curriculum for our disadvantaged pupils, in particular those achieving grade 5+
  • To improve reading fluency and attainment outcomes in reading through improved quality first teaching (QFT) and targeted interventions
  • Implement effective strategies for improving outcomes for identified sub-cohorts of disadvantaged students
  • To reduce the number Fixed Term Exclusions (FTEs) of disadvantaged pupils

The priorities outlined above for 2019-20 strategy, build on the work that took place in 2018-19. They are fundamental to the Academy’s 3 year plan to ensure Pupil Premium students are attending more, behaving better, achieving their potential and ultimately closing the gap with their non-pupil premium peers.
